Author: Duffie Taylor

Duffie Taylor is a human being. She's done many things and failed many times. She's been a student, a newspaper reporter, an ESL teacher, a conservationist, a college instructor, and unemployed. She received a BA in English from Hollins University and an MFA from University of Massachusetts Amherst, though she's unsure she deserved either accreditation. More importantly, she doesn't care, as accreditations and accolades don't really concern her. She currently spends her time teaching for various nonprofits that strive to help refugees, migrants, and underprivileged populations. She also continues to write and create as well as try her best to be a practicing Catholic. Her future ambition is to return to East Africa, which she considers her second home, to raise a family and join those working there to improve our planet. On good days, she's highly productive while also saying wise and funny things and being kind to people. On bad days, she's commenting on YouTube, thinking unduly long about the Zodiac, overdosing on her anxiety medication, and smoking far too many cigarettes. Her lifelong ambition is to be entirely herself while remaining outside the psych ward at the same time. Her books include SOUTH and 7,000 SPARROWS, both from Groundhog Poetry Press.

South

Groundhog Poetry Press LLC

Poetry. SOUTH is a book that defies description. It is not a book of fiction. It is not a book of history or mythology. It is not a book of poetic prose. If W.J.'s Cash's book The Mind of the South were to marry Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D Ma...
